The Life and Lies of Me

My name is Esme. Ever since my parents died in a car crash, my sister is the closest person I've got...even though she hates me. Love is in the air for a while. A diary is the best part of my life right now. It's amazing what just letting go of your emotions really does to you.
I live with my Aunt Mira who has a grudge against me, godness knows why. After stealing her diary, I can find out my aunt's secrets too. I miss my old friend, but will a new boyfriend make things better... and will the love last? I just want to know the secrets of the past, and the secrets of my mum and my aunt - the twins that never got on.

With secrets, lies and the twists and turns of life, Esme will discover the mysteries that you don't even find in stories.


19. Goodbye, Carly!

Thursday 28th November

All is well, I guess. I have good news. At least, I think it’s good news. Aiden and Carly have broken up. But not for the reason I’d hoped. They still like each other, really. So it’s not the fact that they don’t like each other. You see, Carly is moving to London. It’s amazing; I am thrilled with the anticipation of seeing her go. She wants to pursue her modelling career. She’d tried it last year, in Year 7, but all the auditions were in London and she had to keep missing school. In the end, both the teachers and her parents got fed up, so she stopped doing it. Carly made a fair bit of money, though. She was on the Debenhams TV commercial for kids clothing. It was hilarious; she had to wear a big woolly Christmassy jumper with reindeer on it! She would never wear that in the real world – but after all, it’s a job. And, as she boasted, she got £350 for two days of shooting the commercial!


I wonder if Aiden and I could ever get back together… No, I shouldn’t be fantasizing, it will never happen. I’ll only ever get upset and disappointed. At school, when Carly told Aiden, she had little teardrops on her eyes, and it didn’t look like Aiden even bothered! Carly leaned forward to kiss him, but Aiden pulled away! He said (and I quote), “No, Carly. If you’re leaving, then you’re not my girlfriend. Sorry, but you’re dumped. Have fun in London!” I was watching the scene from nearby. I gasped and let my jaw drop. Aiden strutted off, giving me a quick flash of his smile before going on past me. Oh, the look on Carly’s face! It was as if she’d just sucked an extremely sour lemon! When she told her friends, they all cried and pampered her all day. They do that anyway.
